india Updated: Jul 09, 2006 22:45 IST

Discovery shuttle astronauts Piers Sellers and Mike Fossum re-entered the International Space Station on Saturday after completing the first of three planned spacewalks.

The duo slipped back inside the ISS's airlock chamber to start re-pressurization after a spacewalk that lasted seven hours and 30 minutes, an hour longer than expected.
